ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Monday at least 740 Delta flights worldwide were cancelled after a power outage knocked out the airline’s computer system. Now on Tuesday, the people waiting to get home will have to wait a little more.
The 5:30 a.m. Delta flight to Atlanta has been cancelled, which was also completely full. The noon flight has also been cancelled.
On Tuesday Delta will be handing out refunds and travel vouchers to compensate for the outage. The airline was forced to cancel more than 700 flights, with delays to more than 2,000 others.
At Albany International several passengers are actually being shuttled to Bradley Airport in Connecticut. Others are being put up in local hotels.
The airline is still urging passengers planning to travel this morning to double check the status of their flights on Delta’s website or mobile app as delays and cancellations are expected to carry over.
